Sethos88Hey there, Asus X99 Deluxe user here with a Xonar Essence STX. Unfortunatly, Asus boards have the exact same problem, both the Deluxe and Rampage from what I've heard so far. Might be all the way down to a chipset and / or core issue with the X99 platform. I found a temporary workaround; Put your PC into sleep / hibernation, then wake it up again. The Audio should be working fine. You will have to do this on every cold boot! May or may not work for you, however just wanted to drop in and say it's not an EVGA exclusive issue.
superstringySame here - Asus Rampage V Extreme board and Asus Xonar D2X card.Tried both non-beta BIOS updates, every combination of PCI-E slots and the aforementioned Gen 2 suggestion, nothing lets the card produce sound unless I knock the OS (Windows 7 Ultimate x64) into sleep mode and back again.
majinbuxlWish I had read up on this before buying. Just built my rig with the X99 FTW and have this problem also. Tried switching to Gen 2 but didn't work. Using latest bios version 1.11.Come on EVGA give us a fix!
kyo1000is any fix this problem ?
bcavnaughAre you too also on Windows 8.1?Have you given BIOS 1.14 a try?I would think that ASUS is a Fault Here Not EVGA.
oOEvil1OoMake sure you have the 1.14 bios installed, that fixed a lot of problems I had. I built system Friday evening, and the Motherboard was the only issue. After flashing to the 1.14 bios that fixed a lot of issues. Although for my Creative sound card I still had to manually set to gen 2. Also I tried switching it to gen 1 and it worked like that as well. Just something for you to try.
gtxjackbauerIf it doesn't work with any of the manufacturer MBs than it could as well be the company driver itself. You should be pursuing them, seriously. I honestly never liked ASUS because of their CS but now I am starting to think because they cut their corners, everything else is going to poop. I'll never buy ASUS ever again. This is coming from a veteran standpoint in the PC world, not some youngster (no offense).
